German ballscrew factory was established in 1975 to manufacture precision ballscrews for the European markets. With high quality, the sales grew dynamically. In 1981, Finest Ball Screws Company was founded in Taichung Taiwan for the production of rolled and ground ballscrews for the Asian markets. HIWIN Technologies Corp. was founded in 1989 with the acquisition of the two above mentioned campanies and is considered the first company to be capable of manufacturing the highest accuracy grades recognized by ISO and DIN standards as well as transportation grade rolled ballscrews.
